The Lake District Foundation annual Christmas Lunch at the Stove Restaurant at The Langdale Estate was a great success, and was attended by 30 local business members.
Attendees were treated to a presentation by the Lake District Foundation’s newest ambassador Kate Rawles. Kate presented about the her latest trip to South America on a bamboo bike where she saw the effects of climate change on biodiversity.
They also heard from a recent recipient of a Lake District Foundation grant – The John Muir Trust. Pete Barron talked about the progress at the Lakeland Alpine Arctic Restoration Project, mitigating the impacts of climate change at a local level.
Finally they were treated to a talk by James Forrest, fundraiser at the Lake District Foundation, who this year climbed all 273 mountains in Ireland in 8 weeks!
We would like to wish all our business supporters a very merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Here’s to a fantastic 2019!
